Tear the mushrooms into a bowl, scatter over 15g of sea salt (most of this will drain away later) and scrunch together, then leave for 30 minutes, scrunching occasionally. Tip the flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt, then chop and rub in the butter. Make a well in the middle, slowly pour in 200ml of cold water, then mix, pat and bring it together.
Peel the onions, garlic and carrots, trim the celery and pick the rosemary leaves, then finely chop. Scrape into a large pan on a medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil and the chilli flakes, and cook for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Pour in the wine and let it bubble and cook away, then tip in the lentils (juices and all).
Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF/gas 5. Peel the onion, garlic and ginger, place in a food processor with the coriander stalks and chillies (deseed if you like), and whiz to a fine paste. Put the spices and curry leaves into a 25cm x 35cm roasting tray on a low heat with 2 tablespoons of oil and fry for 1 minute, or until smelling fantastic, stirring constantly.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. With a knife, cut the cores out of the tomatoes, then place cut side down in a snug-fitting baking dish with the whole garlic bulb, and scatter over the thyme sprigs. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil, season with sea salt, and roast for 1 hour, or until starting to burst open (the juices will add game-changing flavour later on).
